SSDI shows Augustus J. BAYLESS b 3 July 1912 d. 7 Nov 2000, with last residence Canton, Stark Co, OH.
In 1920, Augustus is living in Fostoria, Seneca Co with Emma Geer and her daughters, (Lucy) Fano HARRIS and Geordie Ruth HARRIS. He is listed as grandson, with father b. MD and mother b. Ohio. I am attempting to confirm his mother. I believe her to be Hope Olivia Harris. Wish to contact anyone with info on Augustus. I am tracing Emma's family. She was Emma HORNER m/1 George HARRIS; m/2 Frank GEER.
the 1920 census index gives "Jerd" as Augustus' middle name.
